CSGB January/February 2016 Auction2nd January 2016 by Sam Whiting
I would like to start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year, and also that you all had a wonderful Christmas, and that Santa brought you lots of cards or card related presents!
The Council has decided that there will be a change to Postal Auctions this year. Bidding is now going to be open to non-members, and I will explain why. Non-members will be charged a 10% buyer’s premium; members of course will NOT be charged buyer’s premium, as normal. Non-members will be sent an invoice and cards will not be posted to them until payment has been received, members will still receive their cards with their invoice. If you aren’t a member and you spend £270 in a year in the auction and attend the convention, you could actually save yourself some money by becoming a member!
The latest auction contains the usual mixture of lots. There are some unusual trade items, some of which I believe to be unrecorded. There is also the first batch of Japanese cards, mainly from Murai, that I hope will appeal to bidders.
If a member wishes to see a scan of a lot they are considering bidding on then I am only happy to oblige. However due to cost of printing and postage this will only be possible by email. Please email your requests to me and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
If a member requires any more information about lots, then please contact me by phone, email or post and I will do my best to assist.
